Nervous glances

Nervous paces

Don’t look in the eye


It seems we’ve all

Been hurt before

So why even try


There’s a great sadness

An ever-present madness

That keeps us passing by


Not stopping, connecting

Or pausing, reflecting

Just the next thing, k thanks bye


Our hearts are bursting

Our hearts are aching

Our lives no sense are making

Missing people, looking for wifi…


Until we unplug.

Accept ourselves and others

As sisters and brothers.

Alive in this moment of now.
